Hello Pet Pals! Even though I haven’t been blogging regularly I’ve been thinking of you.
Here are truths about you to say to yourself to start the week off right:
I am capable;
I am confident;
I am competent;
I have the intelligence that when faced with challenges, I come up I can figure it out;
I come up with creative and innovative solutions two difficulties and obstacles;
I have a pleasing personality;
I have excellent common sense;
I am a team player and I can also work well independently;
I have what it takes to be successful in my career;
I have what it takes to do an excellent job at my work;
I can depend on me to get the job done, get it done well, and get it done on time;
I am solution-oriented and I solve problems.
Repeat these phrases to yourself regularly throughout the day, especially if you’re working for a bully boss. You need to keep up your spirits and your self-confidence. These phrases are an effective tool to use. Feel free to tweak any of these statements to be more congruent with you and your particular situation.
Most of us don’t have the luxury of devoting 24/7/365 to pursuing our passions and living our purpose. Many of us still have obligations and responsibilities to fulfill. That requires us to work with other people and, unfortunately, some of them are very prickly.
This week, I’ll share with you pep talks that can be used for most situations, although the inspiration for these came from others’, as well as my own, challenges at work because of a difficult co-worker.
I hope the following pep talk can help you when you find yourself confronted by someone who makes you second guess yourself.
No matter what others say about me or do to me, and no matter how difficult the day may be, I allow myself to remember and believe that I am capable, I am competent, and I do have what it takes to live my life so that I am pleased.
I also allow myself to remember and believe that although my progress may be slow, I am crafting a soul-prospering life.
Thank you, Source, for your power, your protection, your provision, and your peace today.
Notice the “I allow myself…” statements. I have discovered that oftentimes when we’re confronted by someone with a very strong personality, we subconsciously might think that we don’t have the right to think positive and supporting thoughts about ourselves.
Ridiculous! We know the truth about ourselves and we can remind ourselves of our truth when someone is trying to get us to think their way about ourselves.
No way! Not happening!
Repeat frequently throughout the day: I know the truth about me and I’m allowed to think it!!
One of the most important parts of the day is the early morning hours when we first awaken. How we use those minutes sets the tone and the pace for the day. Successful people as well as experts in the Personal Development field encourage us to start with something positive and uplifting.
Here is a Pep Rally to help us get off on the right foot each day. Thee best way to use these statements is to stand tall in front of a mirror, smile brightly, and say these with as much enthusiasm as possible:
I am in charge!

If any of these statements resonate with you, jot them down and keep them handy. Say them often to yourself through out thee day.
We all have cherished memories of wonderful times in the past, and we also can remember times that weren’t so great. It’s okay to think of these every once in a while, but to dwell in the past…not such a good strategy.
As the poem below points out, living in the present moment and looking ahead to the bright promise of the future is a great way to begin again.
The New Days
The old days, the old days, how oft the poets sing,
The days of hope at dewy morn, the days of early spring,
The days when every mead was fair, and every heart was true,
And every maiden wore a smile, and every sky was blue
The days when dreams were golden and every night brought rest,
The old, old days of youth and love, the days they say were best
But I—I sing the new days, the days that lie before,
The days of hope and fancy, the days that I adore.
The new days, the new days, the selfsame days they are;
The selfsame sunshine heralds them, the selfsame evening star
Shines out to light them on their way unto the Bygone Land,
And with the selfsame arch of blue the world to-day is spanned.
The new days, the new days, when friends are just as true,
And maidens smile upon us all, the way they used to do,
Dreams we know are golden dreams, hope springs in every breast;
It cheers us in the dewy morn and soothes us when we rest.
The new days, the new days, of them I want to sing,
The new days with the fancies and the golden dreams they bring;
The old days had their pleasures, but likewise have the new
The gardens with their roses and the meadows bright with dew;
We love to-day the selfsame way they loved in days of old;
The world is bathed in beauty and it isn’t growing cold;
There’s joy for us a-plenty, there are tasks for us to do,
And life is worth the living, for the friends we know are true.
